What I Remember About Desert Storm
My Father the philosopher,
who waited until I was knee deep
in a "popular war" to write me,
to explain the difference between
murder of Vietnamese Patriots
and killing of Iraqi Invaders.
The hundreds of 'Any Service Person' letters I received
telling me to "Kill all them fucking Ragheads"
for my country — or at least a thousand.
The letter I received from a teenage girl,
which said "War of any kind is wrong."
She was the girl I dreamt of when I
masturbated on those cool Saudi nights.
